The Master degree in Policies and Governance in Europe (PAGE) responds to a changing world in which policy decisions are taken at different linked levels. It prepares students to use public policy analysis in the outside world by drawing on different disciplines.
The Master’s program in Policies and Governance in Europe is offered by the Department of Business and Management in cooperation with the Department of Political Science, and covers major policies made at EU, international, national, regional and local levels. The master’s degree program in Policies and Governance in Europe (PAGE) – held entirely in English – complements topics related to management with socio-political issues, as global managers must be aware of the intricacies of world politics. The first year the program focuses on on the exploration of the economic, legal and economic-business foundations of global management.
The course of studies then focuses on organizational and strategic issues and, finally, in the second year, ends with the analysis of important issues related to the political implications of globalization, international relations, the dynamics of international governmental and non-governmental organizations and activities related to representing corporate, stakeholder and institutional interests.
This graduate program offers several for-credit internship opportunities.
